A screen shot of ServiceMax field service software is shown in this publicity photo released to Reuters May 22, 2014. Venture capitalists poured more than $11 billion into software last year, more than into any other sector and about double the amount in 2010, according to the National Venture Capital Association. ServiceMax, which earlier this year raised $71 million in new funding, directs the technicians to malfunctioning loading docks, helps locate the bug, and streamlines the ordering of replacement parts.
